Gandhi Goes To “War” - Prager Presse, Prague, Czechoslovakia, 1930.

At 6-30 in the morning of March 12, 1930, Gandhi set out from Sabarmati Ashram, Ahmedabad, on his epoch making march to Dandi, a deserted village on the shore of the Arabian Sea 240 miles away. He said he would not return to the ashram until the Salt Act had been repealed and swaraj won. Seventy-eight volunteers and thousands of others accompanied him. This Czech cartoon depicts Gandhi and his non-violent army of freedom fighters defying the armed might of the British Empire.
